I recently took a small trip down yonder to Galveston to visit the flight museum down there. Take a look.

I live just outside of Houston so I go and visit the museum once or twice a year. I love it! Plus I can't wait to take a B17 ride with them... just need to remember when they take her out next time!

Looks like they have a few more additions. I do not remember a B24 there last time. Time to go back. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

I think I saw a Privateer in there. I didn't think that there was one left. Very nice museum there. Another one I need to see before I die.

VERY nice museum! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I'm always impressed by the immaculate way these museums in the USA are maintained and presented. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif

Nice to see that Privateer and I thought the B-58 Hustler looked very impressive.

It's the Navy version of the B-24 with the giant single tail fin. It's not one of their flyables, yet.

The latest addition is the Hurricane. They have also repainted the B-25 in Dolootile's Raiders colors.

I was at the last fly-day in November, which was pretty cool to say the least. I have a video of the P-47, the F4U, and one of the Hellcats starting up. The lighting was bad but the audio sure is nice!

Great fotoreportage!

If you don't have DC-3/C-47 in your museum than aint museum.

My semi-educated guess is that it was painted that way to show up leaks, and to simplify the task of tracing them. They run engines to death at Reno.

It probably isn't very representative of a WWII Merlin internally either, since most racing Merlins are in a pretty extreme mod state. For example, it probably has V-1710 con-rods...

It seems a bit of a shame that on the airshow circuit most stock warbirds are never run above max continuous, whilst at Reno almost everything ends up pushed to such extremes that the results are no longer representative. I'd really like to see (and perhaps more importantly, hear) what WEP actually sounded like...
